The energy consumption on an oil and gas installation is considerable. Typically, between 3% and 10% of the energy produced from the reservoir is consumed on the asset.
Operating companies are now more accountable regarding the energy consumption and subsequent emissions that are released into the environment.
There is a close correlation between low energy consumption and smooth running of plant. Typically, a plant that has high uptime, smooth topsides operation and low component failures also has low flaring, low emissions and high energy efficiency.
